  • Consumer Diamond Promotion

    WDM Strategy Framework

      A number of studies show that consumers need to have a purchasing intention for a product (desire), and trust in the product and the retail outlet in order to complete the purchase.

    Desire

      Desire is the most important purchasing motive for products in the luxury category. Without it diamonds will become lost among luxury holidays, IT gadgets, shoes and handbags. WDM will rebuild interest in diamonds as an object of desire.

    Trust

      Trust is the additional element required when desire is existent. Desire without trust leads neither to socially accepted behaviour, nor to the actual purchase. Therefore, the WDM lays specific emphasis on consumer trust in the retail outlets and the purchasing experience.

  • World Diamond Museum

    The World Diamond Mark presents the World Diamond Museum, the most comprehensive research, preservation and education cultural project. FACETS OF MANKIND is a virtual diamond museum that brings together information, images and narratives from across the globe and through the centuries, from experts and authorities, museums and collections, private and public. 

    Magnificent collections of diamonds and diamond jewellery are held in many major museums. The great heritage jewellery houses – Cartier, Boucheron, Harry Winston, Van Cleef&Arpels, Chaumet and others have extensive collections and archives that are for the most part inaccessible to the general public.

    Similarly, diamonds take pride of place in the historic Crown Jewel collections of royal dynasties, as they do in private collections of noble families worldwide. Added to this, great, historic or simply intriguing diamonds regularly pass through the hands of antique dealers, diamond traders, diamantaires, private collectors and auction houses.

    FACETS OF MANKIND connects them all, collating material from every source.

    Nothing fascinates people more than real stones and real jewellery. Those will be shown as well, by means of taking the World Diamond Museum to all major museums in the world as visiting exhibition. Those will follow a linear presentation and tell the story of diamonds through multimedia and actual examples.This will be a dynamic exhibition, with actual diamonds, jewels and luxury items set with diamonds by renowned designers featured at each venue.

    The Facets of Mankind will start its travel around the world in 2017.

    Details will follow soon.

  • World Diamond Conference

    The World Diamond Conference was created to bring together diamond companies, politicians and other stakeholders and discuss issues of importance.

    The first World Diamond Conference was held inIndia in December 2014 in the presence, and with the support, of Indian Prime Minister Navendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin.  It led to significant trade agreements between India and Russia.

    This first conference set a precedent for the WDM together with the GJEPC as leading industry-driven organisations that initiate and implement industry events benefiting the diamond industry.
